Spelling fresh trouble for former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, the Lokayukta court on Tuesday ordered issue of summons to him, his son B Y Raghavendra, the MP and five other benamidars in connection with a case on alleged illegal land deals in Bhadravathi in Shimoga.
Judge N K Sudhindra Rao further directed the accused to appear before him on September 25.
The court made its observation based on Deputy Commissioner Shinmoga Vedamurthy’s report, which stated that no non-regularisation had taken place.
Rao had last month directed the Lokayukta police to complete a comprehensive probe and submit its report by August 31 based on a private complaint by the Shimoga- based advocate B Vinod. Vinod alleged that Yeddyurappa had abused his office and denotified 69 acres of land at Bhadravathi in 2010 and more than 250 acres of forest land at the reserve forest in Bhadravathi between 2010-2011.
Karnataka Lokayukta ADGP H N Satyanarayana Rao maintained that no materialistic evidence was found to prove the case. The five benamidars are B K Somashekhar, his wife B S Uma Devi, sister B K Radhamani, his mother Adi Lakshmamamma and one H V Manjunath, who was asked to execute the sale deed in favour of Dhavalagiri Properties owned by Yeddyurappa’s family.
